Art Tatum was such a remarkable pianist that when he was inspired, as he consistently is during these formerly rare performances, he was quite wondrous. On this set, the second in an eight-volume series, Tatum is heard solo, with his regularly working trio of guitarist Tiny Grimes and bassist Slam Stewart, with guitarist Remo Palmieri and drummer Specs Powell on "I Can't Give You Anything but Love," dueting with an unidentified bassist on one date, and on a couple songs with a studio orchestra that includes guitarist Les Paul and (on "Down by the Old Mill Stream") singers Jack Martin, Martha Stewart, and Mel Tormé & the Mel-Tones. The music is released in chronological order and taken from private recordings, radio broadcasts, and (the final six performances) V-Discs. Since most of the music was previously unreleased or at least very scarce, this set and the very valuable series in general should greatly interest fans of the frequently astounding pianist.
